Our office specializes in the treatment modality of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. By exploring patterns of thought that lead to self-destructive actions, and the beliefs that direct these thoughts, people with mental illness can modify their patterns of thinking to improve coping.
We use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), an evidence-based approach derived from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to help you learn how to habituate to levels of discomfort and anxiety at your own pace. With guidance and practice, you will eventually learn to do your own ERP exercises to help manage your symptoms.
Psychological testing is often helpful in the fields of medicine, education, psychology, psychiatry, law and social work. It can help to identify areas of strength and/or deficit, clarify a diagnosis, and inform treatment goals for psychotherapy.
